    Do you think we have to go 10-0 for Foreman to commit?

    It appears that a few states in the West have caught up to California when it comes to top tier offensive linemen.
    Why do you think that is? Is it the style of football the state plays?

    Is there still a possibility of an OT transfer through the portal? What about transfers-in at other positions?

    Can the football team conduct workouts using a football or is conditioning all that is allowed at this point?

    Are the coaching/support staff positions filled for the season? I only see 3 GAs listed on the team roster of the 4 allowed. Any insight into who the remaining GA will be?

    What do you project will be USC's 2020 record (assuming it gets through a full schedule) with the new Pac-12 only schedule? Do they make the Pac-12 championship? If so, then win or lose?

    Surprisingly recruiting seems to have taken an uptick. Can you explain why?

    Any chance the season opener featuring two L.A. teams could be played elsewhere, like in Vegas at Raider stadium?

    Erik,
    There is no doubt in my mind the offense will be elite Graham Harrell is doing a fantastic job.

    My question is do you see the defense improving in 2020 under Todd Orlando? Last year USC finished 78th in total defense. Texas not much better at 65th.

    I'm my opinion:
    A top 25 total defense is the benchmark for a NC contender.

    How close can this team get to that?

    Erik, please look into your crystal ball and tell us how you think this WeAreUnited thing is going to play out? Will it be a different story if the season is moved or cancelled? How do you think it will effect SC's recruiting?

    Erik,
    Given the early results of adults playing Major League Baseball and covid results, do you honestly think that college kids will behave in such a manner to enable completion of (the already truncated) season? Do you think the “follow the money” pressure will push the season forward at almost any cause?

    Some rumors out that a couple of our recruiting commits will decommit soon. Do you think this is a case of recruits wanting to stay closer to home due to Covid-19, inability to take official visits, or other factors? If Covid is having an impact, do you think SC's coaching staff is trying to steal some other team's L.A. commits?

    This was going to be the subject of my question too: How will it all play out?
